In IARU Region 1 144.400-144.490 are used for Propagation Beacons, see 

The section 144.000 - 144.040 may be suitable for an Amateur Satellite linear transponder downlink. 

In recent years IARU Region 1 has been looking at this. The RSGB submitted a paper on the subject, see 

CT08_C5_16 RSGB 144MHz Increased Satellite Service 

I don't know if any AMSAT groups in IARU Regions 2 or 3 are looking to increase the Satellite segment in 2m ? Clearly satellites require global allocations.
